This is the first book I have read on this famous battle. The book covers the history of the region prior to the battle and the related events afterwards. Anyone who wants to read about how a battle should not be fought should read this book. The also covers how elite troops of the French army were poorly lead but put up an very couragous defense. I would recommend anyone who is interested in the French Foriegn Legion should read this book.

A someone who has read almost every english book on the famous battle. Colonel Stone adds something lacking in other books.

Thought out the book there are boxes with information such as, untit strenghts at key points during the battle, equipment, artillery types and ranges, and the list goes on.

For someone who wants to know the nuts and bolts about the battle this book adds all those need facts not covered in any other book.

A wonderfull companion to all the great DBP books.
